  1. Hi B.P, I really enjoyed your new way of posting on your iphone. I believe the clarity & light was sufficient. I would love to try the pricey serge lutens powder but only after I try the Lmdb peau vierge. Ocourse anything you review is on my wish list. Great job as always!

  2. Thanks for the feedback, Lynn! It is amazing what can technology can do these days ; ) I just swatched the Serge Lutens powders this weekend (they are so finely milled that it was difficult to get them to show up!) but agree that the Peau Vierge is a must try first! I'm on bottle #3 now...hope your week is off to a good start!
